EOW: Rear Deltoid Raise

Show ’em Shoulders
Rear Deltoid Raises

To get sculpted, well defined shoulders that look great in sleeveless shirts you need to work all three of your deltoid muscles; including the back of the shoulders, your rear deltoids. This exercise is a great back to basics move that will do just that. Be sure to control the dumbbells so your muscles are doing the work and not the momentum of the move. Make it a challenge by alternating each arm Raise.
